A year's trial will convince you of this. | EVERY issue contains more REAL OCCULT MATTER than you will find in any other "Occult" Journal. It does not pretend to be occult and go to extremes in claiming that "matter is all" or that "spirit is all." It knows of the existence of both, and teaches accordingly. it gives no premiums because it is worth its subscription price, not only one but many times over. It panders to no fraud and defends no fake. It has the courage of its convictions, is progressive, clean and bright, and up-to-date. Astrology, Archaeology, Health and Hygiene, Astronomy, Anthropology, Natural Ethics, Mystic Mathematics, Quaint and Curious, etc. are regular features. Subscribe to-day, $1. Address, NEWS E.
